How elegant is this palette?
Those are the colours to work with at The Outlawz Color Challenge this week, and this is my interpretation: WARNING : THERE IS A LOT OF SEWING ON THIS CARD! LOL!!!!
To create my card I used an offcut of black lace that I have had in my stash for simply ages and gathered it up to fashion a ballgown dress shape, which I then sewed into place on my card:
Some beads and sequins were hand sewn sewn onto the bodice, and I created a little hanger out of some silver wire which was also sewn into place::
The silver metal flower embellishments (which started out their lives as bead caps but were flattened to look like pretty flowers) were also sewn on using sequins and beads:
I created a 'corner' out of an scrap of the lace and added a vintage button (from my grandmother's button box - she would have been 102 years old this month had she still been with us - love you Oma!)
And then lastly, for the 'stop' on the base I sewed on another flattened bead cap, two pearl leaves, and some sequins and beads:
The pretty black and silver DP is an offcut that I bought at a friend's craft store in a mixed bag of offcuts she calls "Pot L:uck".
I would like to add my card to the following challenges:
